Disenchanted (aka Enchanted 2)

Recommended Posts

Link to the thread on the original Enchanted (2007), which was touted at the time as a foot in the door, of sorts, opening the way for Disney to return to hand-drawn animation -- a process that finally culminated in The Princess and the Frog (2009).

'Enchanted' to see second chapter
Disney is hoping to charm audiences again with a sequel to "Enchanted," hiring Jessie Nelson to pen a script for the live action fairy tale that "The Proposal"-helmer Anne Fletcher is attached to direct. . . .
The Mouse House is keen on getting another installment of "Enchanted" on the big screen -- perhaps even as early as next year -- after the 2007 pic, that starred Amy Adams, James Marsden, Patrick Dempsey and Susan Sarandon, earned more than $340 million worldwide. It earned $123 million domestically and helped break out Amy Adams. Bill Kelly ("Blast from the Past") penned the original. . . .
Fletcher is a choreographer-turned-director who has had a string of hits with "Step Up," "27 Dresses" and the romantic comedy "The Proposal," the latter of which earned $315 million worldwide for Disney last summer.
"Enchanted 2" fits perfectly with the studio's plans to make more movies that define the Disney brand. Project is Disney's riff on its classic fairy tale features, revolving around Giselle, a princess who is banished from her animated world by an evil queen and thrown onto the live action streets of Manhattan to fend for herself. . . .

Ugh. I'm certain I will have to take my daughter to this. Or maybe not. She'll be eight by then. That might be too old. Do eight year-olds like this?

Ah, well... here's the news we were all hoping to hear today:
 

Seven years after their live-action Disney princess adventure Enchanted scored Golden Globe and Oscar nods and a $340M worldwide box office, the Mouse House is moving again on a sequel. Shrek 2 and Smurfs writers J. David Stem and David N. Weiss have been hired to write Enchanted 2, marking the scripting duo’s latest live-action family outing after penning Are We There Yet? and Daddy Day Camp for Sony.
